Family and Community Learning (FaCL) offers a broad range of learning opportunities intended to encourage adults to: return to learning, further develop skills and qualifications and enhance their lives and to make the most of opportunities. The service, which is a part of the Employment and Skills team, works with a wide range of organisations and local communities and aims to be responsive to the needs of the community. The team have currently put courses on hold due to COVID19 for information of new courses in the future please keep an eye on the website.

Kerry began her learning journey with Wiltshire Family and Community Learning in September 2019, enrolling on the Functional Skills English course in Royal Wootton Bassett. She has approached her studies with determination, completing tasks quickly and accurately in class and at home. She sets consistently high expectations for her own work; she draws motivation from her past experiences, and she strives to prove to herself and others that she can achieve the goals she sets.

Despite coping with anxiety, Kerry participates in group discussions, answers questions and engages in all learning tasks showing how welcoming and supportive learning groups are. She is able to juggle her learning with her busy life as a Mum to three boys, this highlights how flexible the classes can be and with the right attitude you can still achieve.

Kerry is motivated to follow her goals for the future to study zoology and achieve her dream job working with animals. We are pleased to support her on this journey and help her to develop her study skills which she will need further down the line.

Courses are funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency. Learners must be 19+, have been a resident in the UK/EU for three or more years, have less than five GCSEs grades A – C and/or be a service family and/or in receipt of benefits.
